The North Shore Community wellness survey and report was designed to determine how “child and family friendly” the North Shore community is by assessing the health status of the children, the parents and the degree to which community programs and policies support those children and their families. It was implemented in order to provide the North Shore Congress with an understanding of how successful the community is in meeting the principles of the “Child and Family Friendly Community Charter” which the Congress produced, adopted and which the municipalities, school boards and the health authority signed in October 2011.
